My kids (and young students) really find enjoyment in sorting objects and supplies. It's calming, independent, and helpful to the overall function of our house (yay!). I have a collection on Pinterest of different sorting activities that look interesting of unexpected. But we just found this really cool (and fancy) wooden box with compartments on amazon. Everyone enjoyed sorting their treasured shells into the little compartments.
With the window in the top of the box, it makes the objects inside seem really special.
I have kids that have pockets that are overflowing with found objects. Like little magpies, anything shiny or interesting gets squirreled away. We keep some things in jars around the house but I think it would be nice for them to each have a box this Summer that they get to fill with treasures they pick up here and there. I think I'll grab another one for our rock collection as well. What about you? Do you have a collection of objects? Where do you keep them?
Please Excuse the Mess
I'm slowly transferring blog posts from my previous website thebeeskneescousin.com It's taking a considerable amount of time to sort through things. Thanks for your patience.
